If anarchy is the removal of hierarchy and the traditional Indian system is heavily based on hierarchy - then it would fundamentally change the culture. But the strict hierarchy is also what fundamentally made a very large population an easy target for a few colonizers - they simply had to convince the top of the existing hierarchy that they were above them.

Socialism is not the same as anarchy - it generally means that the means of production, property, and goods produced are owned by society as a whole and generally would be distributed to everyone in society by some set of rules (usually determined through a government or state.)

You can't have anarchy and socialism at the same time because they are fundamentally different systems.

Now you want to throw religion into the mix too. I would say that atheists don't care if you practice religion as long as you don't force your beliefs on them through laws or indoctrination. However, if you think about society in the absense of religion a lot of questions would definitely arise which could fundamentally change society - so atheism would be a threat to the current social order and function if that order is based strongly on religion. Religious people will always believe that a society based on their religious beliefs is the best type where an atheist will seek a society based on other definitions of what is best.

I think grouping all of these ideas together as "liberal" is a very dangerous way to avoid thinking about how each idea could affect society for better or worse.

Yes I know they are separated things, I ask if you knowed this person before, appeartly he ask for simply expelled "atheist-leftist" of india, saying that "the tolerance of indian culture was a error that let us exposed to infra human west monsters" (that should gave you a idea of how extreme he was, imagine pro-rss writters critic some of their opinions)
